Finally, got a break from the busy holiday. Just want to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas and I hope everyone has a blessed New Year.

the struggle

I feel tired
so tired
it is difficult to think
much less write
nothing comes to mind
nothing witty
or insightful
nothing profound
or interesting
as my fingers type
pressing the keys
on the keyboard
my mind blank
refusing to cooperate
so I stop
get up
go to the kitchen
get an apple
wash it in the sink
take out a paring knife
cut the apple in half
then cut the halves in half
take a bite
the apple is crisp
and sweet
I feel much better
the struggle to write
something worth reading
does not seem so important
